    So, we own it now -- A couple of questions about OTA

    If you reboot your receiver, you will also lose the clock function as the clock in the receiver is set by satellite signals. This is in addition to the lost guide data.

    It's yours

    Silly question How silly could this question be? You bought the receivers and you own them! Or maybe you are expecting refund from CV? An unrelated question for all of you out there: I lost the guide as expected but also lost the clock in the receiver. Is this expected? I would think there...

    Did Voom go dead early? - No it did not!

    Discovery HD (channel 601) also went dead tonight. All other channels seem just fine. Strange!

    Is Voom PQ really better than DirecTV?

    This is my sentiment as well. Voom PQ used to be better than D* before the new encoder went online. Now it is exactly as the OP described. BTW, I have D* for 10 years and still have it just in case Voom would not make it. Voom, please bring back the PQ as before the new encoder!!!!!!!

    Best PQ you have ever seen?

The PQ was awesome with vibrant color and a 3-D feel. I ended up going to bed 45 minutes later just to finish the show. I...

    List of TV Models with DVI Problems

    Vizio P42HDe TV: Vizio P42HDe plasma Problem: Guide information lost on occasions when Voom STB is connected to the TV through DVI. Guide would be downloaded after 30 minutes or so, but it is annoying. I suspect turning on TV first or STB first might have something to do with the problem...

    New channels coming soon?

    Lacking FSN Arizona is the only reason I am keeping D* for $50 a month. That's the only way I am watching PAC10 tournament tonight. Having double subscription to D* and Voom is only a temperal arrangement. Eventually, I will settle on only one satellite provider, voom or D*, but not both.

    New channels coming soon?

    It is not a choice for Voom. The providers sell the whole package including HD and SD feed.s I am pretty sure ESPN demands Voom to carry SD feed along with HD feed.

    Fox Sports Net HD A large number of FSN channels broadcast selected games in HD from two transponders on Galaxy 13. These channels would be nice additions to the Voom HD lineup. The following quote is from: dated on July 20, 2004.

    Do you have a new provider lined up if Voom goes dark on 4/1/05??

    I still have D* subscription. So it is easy for me just to keep it. Easy. It has all the channels plus DNS HD. I will miss TNT-HD and all the Voom exlusive, though.

    Need the Following information From Voom Subs

    My TV takes DVI input from the Voom STB without any problem. Voom STB seems working fine here. Could it be a compatibility problem between the STB and certain TVs?
